There are two types of bookable loads.... Book and Book Now.
Where both provide opportunities to book the load without the need of a phone call, they do work differently.
The Book Now option is immediately processed. Once you click the button, you will receive a confirmation prompt.
Once you click the SEND BOOKING REQUEST button, you will receive confirmation from the broker if the load has not already been booked.
That's all there is to it!
The Book option, when selected, will direct you away from DAT and to the broker's carrier portal website. From there, you will be able to book the load through their website. Once booked, it will be removed from DAT's load board.
